The transaction is subject to a due diligence period through February 8.
The company first announced in July 2016, it would market the property, along with 10 other U.S. assets, for sale.

On January 23, 2017, the Company’s board of directors authorized distributions based on daily record dates for the period from February 1, 2017 through February 28, 2017, which the Company expects to pay in March 2017. Investors may choose to receive cash distributions or purchase additional shares through the Company’s dividend reinvestment plan.
Distributions for this period will be calculated based on stockholders of record each day during this period at a rate of $0.00178082 per share per day and equal a daily amount that, if paid each day for a 365-day period, would equal a 6.95% annualized rate based on the Company’s December 9, 2016, estimated value per share of $9.35.
